National Film Board (NFB) Campus

Online access
Description
The National Film Board produces English and French documentary films, animated shorts, and drama. UFV Library has an institutional license for classroom viewing of their streaming videos, including both publicly accessible films, and those marked "CAMPUS."

At this time, NFB Campus films will not play on all mobile devices, including Android phones, as the phones do not support Adobe Flash Player.

The NFB also has mobile apps for their free films, available from iTunes and the Play Store. These apps allow you to play publicly-accessible NFB films on mobile devices; subscription-only CAMPUS titles will not play on these apps.
